Signing is giving an assembly unique identity so nobody can mess with it.
You need to give an assembly a strong name to put it into the Global
Assembly cache.
"A strong name consists of the assembly's identity — its simple text name,
version number, and culture information (if provided) — plus a public key
and a digital signature. It is generated from an assembly file using the
corresponding private key. (The assembly file contains the assembly
manifest, which contains the names and hashes of all the files that make up
the assembly.) "
